The MSRP remains unchanged for the 2016 Versa, which means clients will have to pay at least $11,990 to own one, plus a destination and handling fee of $825.

For this kind of money, Nissan will deliver a Versa Sedan S equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission that manages the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder mill good for 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.

However, Nissan let us know that the SL grade's price has been reduced by $500 in order to raise customer interest.

Also for the 2016 Versa, the Japanese carmaker introduces new amenities for a more attractive overall package. Here we'd like to mention the body-color power outside mirrors now standard on all grade levels, along with standard rear speakers for the Versa Sedan S grade and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for the SL trim level.

Two new color options are also available, namely Cayenne Red and Gun Metallic, raising the palette to eight hue variants.

Four versions are available for the 2016 Nisan Versa: S, offered with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic, S Plus, SV and SL equipped exclusively with the Xtronic continuously variable transmission.

As far as the Xtronic gearbox is concerned, Nissan tells us customers get 31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined, for an estimated 400-mile driving range. That doesn't sound that bad on paper, but it's the real-life consumption that matters most.

Visually-speaking, the 2016 Nissan Versa is decorated with chrome grill accents and chrome door handles, plus a rear spoiler.

Inside, Nissan claims the Versa can comfortably accommodate five passengers although we have our reservations about that. In any case, on the tech side the 2016 Versa comes with Nissan's Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, RearView Monitor and a 5.8-inch color touch-screen display.
